We have a 3 yr old black lab. About 3 months ago he has suddenly started to growl at anyone who pets him or even is really close to him even is not touching but maybe talking to him. Usually he will growl then get up and go to a different area but it’s not in any particular place, anywhere he is laying down. We have ruled out medical issues, he has gone to a chiropractor. A little history, Oakley has always been a scared easily by noises and different things but his anxiety and personality changed dramatically after our older dog passed away when Oakley was almost 2 yrs. He became quite depressed and more fearful of a lot of stuff, things he was never afraid of before like the care. We ended up getting a puppy about 5 months after the passing of our dog and it was rough at first, but now it is fine although at certain times he will growl at Bentley but can’t pinpoint why, as Bentley isnt even near him, he may entering the room and be across the room and he will growl. We will be having him neutered to see if that helps upon recommendation of others.
I am reading the K9aggression book and we are working with a behaviorist but has anyone experienced this? Again he doesn’t growl any other time and is very loving except for when laying down. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciatedAuthorPostsViewing 1 post (of 1 total)
